Dear Pamela, What absolutely lovely images to accompany the lines from Tennyson, a poet who appeals to me greatly. I very much hope that you are enjoying yourself hugely on the 'Island' [although I have no idea where it might be!].
lovely Pamela, and perfect for a weekend !
Edward knows that life all started by the sea, harmoniously and violently, chaos and harmony in one split second. Enjoy the island.
Beautiful Pamela...I envy you the sea and I love your shoes!! I am sure you are having a wonderful time.Jeanne :)
Oh, i love these photographs, Pamela. Edward looks so handsome! Would love to see more of your photography here (hint hint) ;) Lizzy

Break On! the first photo of Edward is wonderful :)
Great shots of Edward on the beach. What's the betting that he, like all good PON's doesn't like to get too close to the water ?
Edward is the wisest, most content looking dog I have ever seen.
How sweet and specialLove and hugs
I love this gorgeous photo of the beautiful Edward staring wistfully out to sea. Leigh
Where has that beautiful boy been my whole life? XXOO
pamela, wonderful thoughts and images!I have an interview with Artist Robert Anders up on my site that is fascinating.KarenaArt by Karena
Perfect!...and great shoes...
Pamela, I love your shoes! But of course, you have exquisite taste.
gorgeous photography, lovely prose.lucky edward!debra
Oh Edward! He looks so content with his patch in the world over there. So glad you had a lovely time. :)And I love Tennyson... my favourite poem is The Lady of Shalott, and my favourite painting is of the same name, by Waterhouse. Can't get enough of those Pre-Raphaelites. And the word verification is 'dentses' - not quite 'Dante' but close!
Hello P&E,Glad you had a great time!
I love this image.pve
Oh, I love this. The verse and the pictures. They take my breath away.PS: Dog love is a new world to me, as of a few weeks ago. But already, I feel shaken up and in many ways, more whole.
The first time I encountered these lines by Tennyson was in 'What Katy Did Next', by Susan Coolidge!
